Hi everyone and a Happy Thanksgiving to you, your family and friends.

I've just started to work on Armes and what tricky rhythms. As usual counting correctly is my nemesis. My teacher played it for me and I have a CD with this piece and several Schumann pieces on it.

Maybe one day I'll be able to pick up a piece of music and just play it - how does that Rogers and Hammerstein song go "you gotta have a dream".

Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, musdan! And I am sure you can pick up a piece of music and just play it... you just need to pick the proper level. For proficient sight-reading, you don't want to be trying stuff at or near your current level of ability; try something a couple of notches easier.
